"Olivia Lively is smart, spirited, independent, and a private detective taking on cases in Portland, Maine.... There is much to love about this novel. Olivia is the perfect beach-read detective, who adores good food, fine wine, designer clothes, and handsome men. The plot twists and turns: the reader might think they know whodunnit, but the whys are complicated. Finally, the Portland setting is fully realized in the way Boston is fully realized in the Spenser novels. Shelley Burbank has an eye for the details that make her characters attractive to readers and that paint a perfect backdrop for those characters to act against."-Anne Britting Oleson, author of the Aventurine Morrow Thrillers and the forthcoming, THE SPRINGS
"Shelley Burbank's Portland, Maine P.I., Liv Lively, is a memorable character, flawed but self-aware, determined to go her own way and, in Final Draft, a champion of the underdog. I'm looking forward to reading more of Liv's forays into crime-solving."-Kaitlyn Dunnett, author of the Liss MacCrimmon Mysteries
"Sassy, stylish Olivia Lively is a private investigator with almost as many skeletons in her closet as her clients. And her debut in this fast-paced page-turner will delight mystery readers the world over."-Cynthia Dagnal-Myron, author and award-winning Chicago Sun Times journalist
"The author has written a delicious debut-a fine romantic mystery-with a character and story that hold you close. Olivia Lively grew up in a monied family, but choose to be a private investigator rather than a society wife. She's smart, fearless, funny, a classical music aficionado, and boy does she know how to dress... I so love this character that I long for a book series, a Netflix series, and her fully-stocked closet. Highly recommended for romantic mystery and women's fiction fans who adore feisty female protagonists."-Char Jones
